0.9.0d rising memory usage.

Hello,

I was testing imitone a bit watching for CPU usage, seems it is quite better that 0.8 in that aspect, nice.

But in Process Explorer (oh yeah, I'm on Windows 10 64bit) I'm also seeing a constantly rising memory usage. Slow but steady.

Re: 0.9.0d rising memory usage.

Hello —

I'll look into this.  imitone uses so little memory that tracking down leaks has tended to be a lower priority — but not the sort of thing I should let slip by.  Let me know if you see significant (>300MB) memory usage.

I noticed this too. Refreshing the program helps.

This probably explains the crash reports I've seen where the user has been running imitone for 48 hours straight.  :)

But I've used imitone for more than 48 hours straight a few times without any crash. Maybe because my system has 16 GB RAM?

The best protection against a slow leak is a big bucket.  Modern computers have ludicrous amounts of memory and imitone uses fairly little (even with this defect).

In any case I'll make a point of fixing this in our next update.  We're in R&D mode right now so that might be a little while yet unless this problem starts to look like a more urgent one.
